Your Rights in U.S. Court After an International Flight Crashes
Whether a commercial airline is based in the United States or in another country, it is accountable for personal injury and wrongful death claims brought against it in U.S. courts if the airline does significant business in this country. Generally, that means operating flights to or from at least one American airport.
If you’ve been injured in a commercial aircraft crash or have lost a family member on an international flight operated by an airline doing business in the United States, I can pursue your claim in an American court — even if the flight was between two foreign cities.
I am also available to consult on commercial aircraft crash cases that are brought in the courts of other countries, providing my knowledge of aviation and the causes of aviation negligence to the efforts of lawyers licensed to practice in those countries.
Dealing With International Treaty Issues After a Commercial Aircraft Crash
International treaties have imposed limitations on the damages that plaintiffs can obtain after accidents that occur on international flights. However, the litigation process may still help you get some compensation and reveal the truth about exactly what happened to cause the accident.
If you’ve lost a loved one in a fatal plane crash or have been seriously injured on an international commercial aircraft crash, don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss what I can do to help you pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
